BCO & HTXO Present: Backpacking 101 sponsored by Osprey

Wed, October 16, 2019 - 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM

Location: Whole Earth Provision Co. , 2501 Post Oak Blvd, Houston, TX 77056

OR online at http://www.facebook.com/BayouCityOutdoors/


 
Don’t let inexperience stop you from taking the trail of a lifetime!

Backpacking is camping to the extreme. It enables you to take the path less traveled and find those once in a lifetime, National Geographic worthy vistas! It’s about finding your inner John Muir and taking only what you need. Backpacking is truly the ultimate adventure.


 
However, it’s an adventure where preparation could make or break your trip and your back. One of the biggest mistakes rookies make is over packing. Normally, we take pride in fitting an outstanding amount of objects into our bags, but for backpacking you have to find a balance. The longer your going to carry your pack, the more important this is. Your pack needs to be light enough to lug for miles and miles, while still having everything you need. As backpacking veterans, we’ve learned through experience how to do just that.


 
Join us in person for Houston Outdoor LIVE at Whole Earth Provision Co. for a packing demo and weigh-in session to demonstrate live the value of choosing your gear carefully. Can’t make it in person, check us out via Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/BayouCityOutdoors ).

Both events run simultaneously and you can join the Q&A online or in person. However, you’ll want to join us in person if at all possible!


 
Amazing Door Prizes & Raffle!

Osprey is giving away Silicone Pint Glasses and Stuff Sacks to the first people who check-in at the event! (while supplies last!)

PLUS!!! We’re raffling off an Osprey backpack to everyone who RSVPs. (Must be present in person to win.)


 
What will we talk about?

We’re going to get through as many of these essentials as we can plus a Q&A at the end:

- Food and water needs and options

- Backcountry toilets and beyond

- Building up to carrying your pack

- How to pack your pack – lighter is better

- What you need in your first aid kit

- Filtering water with several different types of filters

- Staying safe around potential predators

- How, where and why to hang your personal effects and food


 
We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor fun mastery.


 
BCO Before you head out on the trail, join us for the evening chat. RSVP at https://bit.ly/2lxTAg9. For additional information, e-mail to info@bayoucityoutdoors.com

HTXO Volleyball Social 
October 18, 2019 - 6 PM – 9 PM  
Sideout Volleybar 
2623 Keene St
Houston, TX 77009 
 
Are you looking for more than just another happy hour?  
 
Our happy hour and volleyball event is a great introductory event to help you get active outdoors and to meet other people who are also looking for more than just happy hour. Plus having games to focus on, helps remove some of the awkward pauses that can happen the first time you meet someone. 
 
And the best part… you’re meeting people who with similar interests.  Not just people interested in happy hour or volleyball. The group of people who attend this event are looking for new friends who want to explore Houston, try new things, and get outdoors! 
  
No experience required for volleyball  
We’ll spend a little time warming up and going through the rules.  Then we’ll play a few games… we can get as competitive as you all want, but mostly, we’re there to have fun. 
We’re an inclusive group which means we still hit the ball to new players who may or may not be able to return it. It’s the only way people can get better! 
  
Don’t want to play volleyball? No problem!  
Plenty of people come out just to socialize on the large patio, play a game of cornhole or ping pong!  Plus, they have a full bar and food truck. 
  
What to expect:  
Getting there: You can’t see Sideout from the street near the railroad tracks. Once you turn, you’ll see a large dark parking lot.  Sideout is at the very end of the parking lot and fully lit when you get there. 
  
Parking: FREE PARKING and there is plenty of it! The parking lot is overflow parking for While Oak Music Hall (WOMH). If there is an event at WOMH, you might see a parking attendee collecting money for parking.  Just tell them that you’re there for volleyball and you don’t have to pay to park. 
  
How to find the group: The venue is not usually packed. When you walk in, turn to the right and follow the patio towards the building. We usually setup a table with an HTXoutdoors sign outside of the door that leads inside the building. If you get to the ping pong table or the dog park, just turn around and you’ll probably see us on the right. If you don’t see the HTXoutdoors sign, ask the bar tender.  They usually know where we are.  We usually play on Court 1 which is the court closest to the bar.
 
Never been before??
No worries!  More than half of the people going have never been before and many people show up by themselves.  So when you show up, if everyone looks like they have known each other for years.... Don’t worry.  They likely just met.  Look for the event leader and then them know it’s your first time and we’ll make sure to take care of you!
  
About the group you’re meeting: Because this event is open to everyone, we get a lot of people who are coming out for the first time! That means not everyone knows each other yet so you don’t have to worry about crashing a group of people who have been friends for years. So if everyone is chatting up a storm when you get there, it’s just because they have quickly realized they have a lot in common. And even when some of the people know each other, they are still there to meet more people with similar interest. 
  
Dog & Kid Friendly: Dog-Friendly for friendly dogs.  Dog must be on a leash… UNLESS… you let them loose in the dog park attached to the patio!  
Kid-Friendly for friendly kids until 9pm.  After 9pm, the venue turns to 21+. 
  
Who is HTXoutdoors? 
If you have been looking for a group to explore Houston, do outdoor activities and meet people with similar interests, you have finally found it! We are Houstonians (new, original and somewhere in between) in our 20’s & 30’s and we love the outdoors! With a zest for adventure, we have day trips, weekend trips & international trips.  So if you have 2 weeks of vacation or “unlimited”…you can find new adventures to fit your schedule. 
 
Come out and meet others interested in hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, rock climbing and more!  It’s a good chance to meet each other. It’s an even better chance to plan some adventures.

BCO presents A Walk in the Woods Aka Hiking Houston 

October 19, 2019 

Meet at 8:30 AM, start 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM 

Meet at Memorial Park Rugby Field Parking Lot 

N Picnic Lane, Houston, TX 77007 

 

Hiking in Houston does exist! And we’re going to show you by taking you on some ‘hidden’ trails that even some native Houstonians don’t know about!  And, it’s right here, inside the loop!

 

Join us for an hour and a half, quick-paced hike through some of the lesser-known (and more adventuresome) trails our park has to offer. 

 

What to Wear:

These are actual trails!!  Wear tennis shoes or hiking boots, as it’s easy to bang a toe on a tree root. You’ll be shocked at some of the "elevation" in the park that you wouldn’t expect from just driving by.  

Wear long pants, yes, even in the summer.  It helps to protect your legs from bugs, critters and branches that might jump out and bite you!

 

What else to bring:

Water!  Water is required.

Bug Spray

Sun Protection - hat, sun glasses, long sleeves, sunscreen

 

Where to Park:

Please, check the meeting location map (https://bit.ly/2M6GKST ) on the calendar before you head over to the park.  It’s a big park, and we try and leave on time! 

 

If the lot is full, there is plenty of street parking.

 

How to find the group:

Look for the BCO sign for where the parking lot is.  We’ll be on the grass at the back of that parking lot.  (not standing in the parking lot.)

 

Never been before??

No worries!  More than half of the people going have never been before and many people show up by themselves.  So when you show up, if everyone looks like they have known each other for years.... Don’t worry.  They likely just met.  Look for the event leader and then them know it’s your first time and we’ll make sure to take care of you!

Brunch after the Hike

October 19, 2019 - 11 AM - 12:30 PM 

Canyon Creek 

6603 Westcott St 

Houston, TX 77007 

 

Let’s face it. When you go on a hike and you don’t really know anyone, you tend to just talk to the person who’s walking next to you.  And while we try to mix things up on the hike, there’s no better way to get know people than over a little food and drinks!

 

So whether you went on the hike or not, join us for Lunch and drinks at Canyon Creek!  Dogs are allowed on the patio now!!

 

Great good and drinks. 

 

How to find the group:

Look for the Bayou City Outdoor Signs and the group of sweaty people who look like they just hiked!

 

NOTE: Our hike is done about 10:30 am at Memorial Park so if you arrive before us, please grab a table outside. 

 

Parking: 

There is a small parking lot and street parking. Watch for do not park signs near the residential houses and do not leave anything visible in your car.

 

RSVP at https://bit.ly/2OTY6DO for additional information, please e-mail to info@bayoucityoutdoors.com

BCO & HTXO 12th Annual Haunted Hike  

October 31, 2019 - 6 PM - 9 PM 

Meet at Memorial Park near the rugby/soccer field parking lot 

N Picnic LN - South side of Memorial (map link at www.bayoucityoutdoors.com) 

 

Get your spook on with BCO & HTXO as we slither our way through the deep, dark forest trails.  Taunt the forest trolls with us on Halloween night in Memorial Park!

 

For those who make it out of the forest in one piece, we’ll calm our nerves with pizza and beverages (bring $5 for pizza and BYOB beverages!) and toast those we left behind at the after-party...just kidding. (Maybe!)

  

Tap into your inner wolf, go all vampy on us, or come as your witchy self. Leave the bars to the zombies and join us in the woods for some quality (and creepy) exercise and socializing. 

 

Meet at 6:00 and depart at 6:30 PM sharp from somewhere the  rugby/soccer field parking lot on the south side. Check the map and then look for the BCO & HTXO  signs, since there’s a lot of construction at the park. 

  

Don’t get left in the dark - bring a headlamp or flashlight.   Wear sturdy walking shoes (it is a hike no matter how dead you are)! Bring some bug spray if you're tasty. For you chickens out there - you’re still invited to the after-party starting around 8 PM in the parking lot.  

  

Open to members, guests and the public (we love fresh meat). Bring a friend or come alone -  you’ll be sure to find a devil or two to chat up. (PS - Please no dogs at this hike)... Yummy!

 

Bring $5 cash if you want to share pizza in the parking lot after the hike.   BYOB, no glass!!
